Thanks to a generous donation from The William Herschel Society we will be running a new programme of solar and star gazing sessions from Thursday 30 July until Saturday 29 August. Sessions are for family or household groups. You will be welcomed and taken through to our museum garden, the very place where William Herschel discovered the planet Uranus. Telescopes will be set up and our team will be on hand but at a safe distance, to help you interpret the skies above. Pre-booking timed slots is essential.
Please note that this event has already taken place on 29/08/2020
